There are scale models of guns on Shapeways.

I do hope Shapeways will have a stated policy on the production
of guns and gun parts, particularly such as this:-.

From Shapeways FAQ
Are there prohibited products?
Explicit sexual content and weaponry look products are not accepted on Shapeways, neither private, nor public. Any file containing such content will be removed without further notice. We are allowed to make an exception for miniature weaponry (maximum size 10cm).

Does that also include swords ?
I know of a shop that has 20cm+ swords for sale, 20cm of Stainless steel could be a bit penetrating Rolling Eyes


If it doesn't look good it's not designed by us.

A weapon lookalike is a weapon lookalike, imo, a 20cm sword is a weapon, no lookee-likee about it.
Feel free to click the 'Report Abuse' link on models you think deserve it Smile
